Just because a variety is a new introduction to our commercial range, doesnโ€™t mean that we havenโ€™t been working on it for numerous years. It takes quite a few seasons to develop a variety, establish its field resistance, its slot and various other characteristics such as field holding ability and uniformity.

At Sakata, we take the development of genetics very seriously, and we have a dedicated, highly qualified team focusing only on this.

๐—ฃ๐—ข๐—ช๐—˜๐—ฅ๐—ฆ๐—Ÿ๐—”๐— * F1 Hybrid is an example of a new addition to our cabbage range – a variety that has put up its hand through many trials over the years.ย  It has very high resistance to Blackrot disease and it is a faster maturing variety with an average head size of 3.5 to 5kg. These photos of Powerslam have been taken 78 days after transplant. It is extremely uniform, easing the harvesting practice quite a bit.ย
